Good Governance Learning Network


The GGLN is a network of South African non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that aims to promote participatory, effective, accountable and pro-poor local governance.

The network was established in 2003 in order to provide an interface for civil society organisations working on issues of local governance and citizen participation to network and share information towards strengthening local democracy in South Africa. Other objectives include the documentation and dissemination of good practices, building the capacity of practitioners, advocacy, as well as creating awareness about the value of participatory local governance.

The Secretariat of the GGLN is hosted by Isandla Institute.
